I am thinking about raising quail for meat. DH says he is not going to build me another avery after he spent so much time and money making my dream chicken coop and run. We do although have dog cages. One is occupied by my bachelor rooster and the other is occupied by our 13 year old lab. We don't expect him to live much longer and DH suggested that when the dog died we use his kennel as an avery for quail. The only thing is that the floor is concrete. It is made of 2"x 4" welded wire and we could easily put 1/4" X 1/4" hardwire cloth along the bottom 4' to keep the beasties from reaching in and eating the quail. The dimentions of it are 8' X 10' and 6' tall. We could expand it to be 16' X 10' if we rehomed the rooster. It is covered with a plastic corregated roof and has vines that have grown up the side that "gets weather" so it is protected. We live in coastal Georgia (Savannah area) so the winters do not get really cold and absolutely no snow. I am really hoping this kind of set up would work for a quail pen. Please let me know your feedback. I am going to get a few pictures to show you all if it would help. Thanks for the feedback! ETA: I am thinking we want Bob Whites.
